ICRI Local Projects
Hearts Leap Preschools: At Hearts Leap, it is our aim to provide an exciting, stimulating and creative environment and education for children. We believe that education is a lifelong process and that all adults and peers with whom they come in contact influence children. Parents and Early Childhood Educators are partners in making school a positive and beneficial experience for young children. Our Hearts Leap community includes Hearts Leap, Hearts Leap North, and Hearts Leap Beginnings in Berkeley and Hearts Leap Lakeview in Oakland.
ICRI/Stanford University Children's Centers: As of October 2, 2017, ICRI commenced operations of Stanford University's three early childhood and infant/toddler programs: Arboretum, Madera Grove and Stock Farm Road Children's Centers.
